Ok, so this is take 2 for this topic. My first go was a fiasco simply because nothing shows and it’s a non editable post, bizarre at least.
I’ve had this kit for the past 18 years (hence the adult age) at least according to Scalemates, that states it was launched back in 2001.
I vividly recall my enthusiasm about it, it was a glorious plan to “superdetail” this bomber. Bought the then state of the art AM accessory, Verlinden set and planned to scratch a bit more the overall good details of the cockpit plastic
As it was I read in one of the most prestigious modeling magazines that this set contained a totally spurious PE detail meant to represent the Dornier’s dropped flaps. Well this (and probably some other things along) curbed my enthusiasm about buiding her, and back to the box it went, staying put for the past 17 years at least, resisting 2 house moves in that meantime.
So when TC challlenged us to build a Shelf Queen, this one was my first choice, and boy do I have plenty to choose.
Here’s what was inside the box:
1- main cockpit pasts painted- really good shapes here, a true testimony of how good late Monogram was in their mounding.
2 – some work in the glasshouse
3- general view of contents- notice the already carved areas for the flap inserts
4- no idea where or when did I purchased this resin set, but they sure look the part, so there’s hope for those holes
5- lots of sink holes in these parts. That’swhere I’ll resume work. Hope all the kits parts are still inside this box
Let’s see how it goes, thankfully I have a full year to build this little beast
